This house built in 1851 has according to the census been occupied by canal company employees and Trencherfield Mill managers and was my home from 1941 until 1956 when along with my parents we moved into a brand new council house.In the background along the wall can be seen rabbit hutches which I think were built by my Grandfather who was a master carpenter and worked for the Leeds and Liverpool Canal Comp. To the right of the hutches is an outside dry toilet. On a cold winters night a candle was the only form of light and newspaper, well I'll leave that to your imagination. Geese and chickens were housed towards the top end of the yard.The house has been renovated in the last five years and the photograh attached was taken from the yard looking towards the back door.

Thank you for your comment and for taking the time to bring part of the picture to life. It is realy interesting to hear about how one of the buildings was used in the past.
